TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) -Arizona coach Lute Olson has missed practice for a second day amid reports he could be stepping down.
Arizona spokesman Tom Duddleston says the university has not been informed by the 74-year-old Hall of Famer that he's quitting.
ESPN's Dick Vitale first reported the story Thursday, saying Olson would be replaced by assistant coach Mike Dunlap, a former Denver Nuggets assistant and Metro State coach who joined the program in May.
Olson is about to enter his 25th season with the Wildcats. He missed all of last season after taking a personal leave of absence for what he later termed ``a medical condition that was not life-threatening.''
